6:01am
we have a busy day. >> lots going on. >> lots of news. >> headlines actually. fox news alert. a man goes on a killing spree before finally turning the gun on himself. the story developing overnight in grand rapids, michigan. 34-year-old rodrick dansler killed seven people including his own daughter. he led police on a high speed chase where he took three strangers hostage inside their home. the ordeal ended finally ended when they escaped unharmed. no word of what caused him to snap. despite a recent -- despite a request from president obama to spare his life a mexican national put to death by lethal injection in texas last night. his last words, an apology and then viva mexico. he raped and murdered a 16-year-old girl in 1994. president obama and the state department asked for a last minute reprieve because he had been convicted without getting legal advice from the mexican consulate which is a requirement of the vienna convention but the

supreme court and texas governor rick perry denied those appeals. and parts of denver underwater after a fast moving storm flooded streets and sank cars and stranded passengers. at least one house fire was sparked by lightning. no one was hurt. and even though lightning hit within 500 feet of the shuttle atlantis on the launch pad, nasa is still planning to go forward with the shuttle's final liftoff this morning at 11:26. a panel of engineers is looking for any damage. fueling has been under way for some time. there's still about a 70% chance of bad weather at launch time which could scrub the mission. and hold on to your hats, the royals are coming to america today. prince william and kate set to arrive in los angeles tonight where they will stay through sunday but first, yeah, they're finishing their trip up in canada there waving cowboy hats and looking good. we'll be arriving here soon. >> oh, goodie.
6:03am
>> roll out the red carpet. all right. let's talk a little bit about breaking developments in the casey anthony case. yesterday, you saw it live here on the newschannel at 9:30 eastern time, judge perry gave out the sentence. she was acquitted on charges of murdering her daughter. however, she was found guilty four counts of lying to cops and for the most part, judge perry threw the book at her. he gave her the maximum sentence of one year per charge plus $1,000 per charge so when he calculated, she's already served, as we take a look over there, 1,043 days. they thought initially she would be releasedd next wednesday. then they recalculated, it looks like she's going to wind up getting out next sunday, july 17th, almost three years to the day when her daughter went missing. >> steve, you remember yesterday with judge alex on saying he didn't necessarily have to give her credit for time served but
6:04am
judge perry said, you know, time served. so what is this now? she has a week and a day until she gets released. >> interesting thing will be life changes for her a lot when she gets out here and it will be interested to see where she goes, how she's treated. they're very concerned about the public safety when she's released. not just casey anthony's safety but people who are near her or around her. there's some word she could possibly be staying with other relative vs. the family. we don't know what the family dynamics will be like. >> i can tell you what it's going to be. she can't -- those close to her, her dad is going to say how dare your attorney suggest that i have been abusing you since you were a little child. >> that's a great point. >> that's a great point. >> if they release her to the parents, wow. >> they're not going to -- she's going to wind up going down -- >> dinner table, though. >> anthonys have arranged to have her stay with an aunt in texas. meanwhile, what about the
6:05am
jurors? what's going to happen to them? a couple has spoken out. we don't have their names yet and apparently, they're going to release them next week. here's a quotation from the orange county corrections office. due to the high profile nature of this case and intense emotional interests by the appropriate -- by the public, appropriate measures will be taken to release the individual in the community in such a manner as to preserve the safety of the individual and the public. in other words, they're not going to let the press know exactly when they're going to spring her from the jail. >> right. there are some places where not even the jury is necessarily welcome. there's a restaurant down there in the florida area who say they don't want the juries there. they've put up a sign saying jurors not welcome. >> listen, for a lot of reasons, how about the other patrons of the restaurant? if something -- look, no one is calling for any violence but these people are -- they've become of the most hated people in the world right now, these 12 in casey anthony trial. >> i got an article here, skyline chile in clearwater that
6:06am
says hey, the pinellas county jurors are not welcome here. we've showed the sign a moment ago. they might come here, maybe they'll slip in. they might decide to eat their chili somewhere else. >> i don't think they would go there. another juror has spoken out to the st. petersburg newspaper. he's a 46-year-old guy, father of two. he's one of the two people, we told you yesterday that apparently on the first ballot, they found 10-2 to acquit on the first ballot. he was one of the two. he said if the verdict was on emotion, anthony would have been guilty but there was not enough evidence. here's a guy who spent his 46th birthday sequestered and thought long and hard about it but he simply could not at the end find her guilty. >> all right. right now, let's bring in the attorney for casey's parents, cindy and george anthony.
6:07am
good morning to you. >> good morning to you. >> i understand you would like -- your clients, george and cindy, would like to have mr. baez, their daughter's attorney, disbarred, kicked out of the legal profession for what he did to their family. could you explain that, please? >> sure. in the opening statements, mr. baez made some very for lack of a better term, fantastic remarks about george anthony, about the sexual molestation, about george having something to do with moving the body. and there -- before he made any questions or asked anybody anything, he didn't have immunity but in the state of florida, once you ask one question of anybody involved in the trial, you get immunity. so we can't have -- we can't even sue him. he did what he had to do to defend his client and we're left with the results. >> mr. litman, what's the family
6:08am
dynamic like now? have the parents spoken with casey since the verdict? >> no, the parents haven't spoken with casey since the verdict. as far as what think clienmy cl, i'm bound by attorney-client privilege. they're trying to see where the next chapter holds for them and where they go from here. >> there's been rumors of a casey anthony deal for an interview, what about george and cindy anthony? have there been offers? there's been a rumor that abc paid for one of their interviews in the past. are there more deals lining up? >> one of the benefits of going with my firm is we don't discuss any of that stuff. if there's anything along those lines, certainly, we'll make sure that it's done well and nothing will be leaked. and if nothing's done, then i don't have to worry about anything coming out about a million dollar book deal. >> is there concern for their safety? >> absolutely. three minutes after the verdict came in, we received the first
6:09am
death threat for the anthonys and there's been a continuous stream for my firm, my staff and for my clients from a variety of death threats and just a lot of hate mail. there's a lot more support out there for my clients, fortunately. we have to weed out the good ones from the bad ones. >> is it split, though, from me as an observer, i'd say the support would be for george anthony. it looks like he got the raw end of the deal. cindy, a lot of people think she may have perjured herself to save her daughter's life. is a lot of the stuff, the bad stuff directed to cindy? >> no, if there's anything bad, it's directed to the family as a whole and if it's a good thing, everybody is saying, you know, support and love for george and cindy. so a lot of people think cindy may have perjured herself. certainly, my client is adamant that she didn't. but regardless of that, people understand what she's going through and they still send their support and love for her. >> sure.
6:10am
mr. lippman, there's a story that the family has come to a decision that she, casey anthony should not go home to florida when she's sprung next sunday. she should go to texas to live with an aunt. is that accurate with what you know? >> i've never heard from this aunt in the year and a half that i've been representing my clients, they've actually never mentioned her and i normally don't talk about what my clients say. whoever this person is, she's inserting herself in this case for whatever reason. whatever casey decides to do, her attorneys will deal with it privately because of security issues but i'm not aware of her going to texas. >> do casey's parents ever want to talk to her again? >> again, i sound like a broken record. i can't talk about what they want. but if there's any communication, certainly -- >> will they make any effort to reach out to her once she's out?
6:11am
>> i imagine at some point -- i mean, you have to remember, it's still a family and along the lines of there will be at some point, i imagine, some communication. what the extent of it is, what it's about i can't discuss or know if it will ever happen. at some point, there will be some discussions. >> understood. all right, mark lippman, the attorney for george and cindy anthony, thank you very much for joining us today from florida. >> thanks very much for having me. >> you bet. >> oh, boy. all right, let's talk politics. >> this is a good one. this is a good one, though. top obama advisor mr. david plouffe says unemployment won't be key in 2012. it's unimportant. forget about that. mr. obama should still be elected according to david plouffe who ran the 2008 election, campaign director. >> things were easier in 2008. >> and the unemployment rate was a lot lower then, too. his quote, the average american doesn't view the economy through the prism of g.o.p. or
6:12am
unemployment rates or monthly job numbers. people won't vote based on the unemployment rate. they're going to vote based on how do i feel about my own situation? do i believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family? wow. wow! i mean, talk about being off base. look at the g.o.p., all the candidates that have announced so far, that's the one thing they're driving home. >> how many people are unemployed right now? >> 14 million. >> i don't think those 14 million will think that guy is doing a good job for me. he says he's going to be based on a feeling, how is it afen affecting me and my family? i looked on clearpolitics.com they have where they poll people how do you feel about the direction e country going in? that's a pretty good indicator. right now, 28% of those who have answered the question feel the country going in the right direction. only 28%. meanwhile, 63% say we are headed
6:13am
down the wrong track. >> one other thing, i'm sorry, molly, i know you want to jump in here, one of the other things besides the unemployment rate, things that aren't feeling so great in the economy, gasoline. it's still $3.60 a gallon. it's double what it was when president obama was sworn in and it's gone back up. doesn't feel good. >> there's been a tremendous amount of talk about president obama and the challenge he faces with these unemployment numbers which, although perhaps some of his campaign advisors would like to steer things in another direction to say they don't matter, statistically it hasn't en done befor a president to win re-election when unemployment has been as high as it is. >> e-mail us, let us know. do you think unemployment will have something to do with his re-election? it's trillions over budget. how will the united nations explain its fuzzy math? stuart varney with a story they don't want you to hear. >> and then if you are into politics, it's the summer blockbuster that could be bigger
6:14am

>> the united nations wants a whopping $76 trillion to transition the globe to green energy. that amounts to nearly five times the gdp of the united states of america. and the craziest part -- >> the u.n. wants to spend a big chunk of that money on things that have nothing to do with climate change in third world countries. stuart varney is here to weigh in on this. so where does this come from? where does the money come from and where would they like to see it go? >> where do you want to start on this one? this shows you how totally out of wack the global warming community is with american public opinion. what the u.n. says is this -- we need $1.9 trillion each and
6:18am
every year for 40 years in order to solve the climate problem worldwide and to reduce poverty and hunger worldwide. so they're bringing in poverty and hunger along with climate change. >> it's not all green. it's poverty, hunger and everything else. >> but you cannot eradicate poverty and hunger without going green because if you don't go green, you increase poverty and hunger. you got it? >> so where is this money expected to come from and how much is coming from the united states? >> ok, we contribute 22% of the united nations budget so theoretically, if this money were to be appropriated by some global government, we would provide 1/5 of it. hundreds of billions a year. >> hundreds of billions a year. i'm doing the math but just around $15 trillion and more than our total year, one year, full year's gdp. >> obviously, it's not going to happen. under no circumstances will this happen.
6:19am
this is a recommendation from the united nations. it's not a mandate. who is going to put a mandate on? >> same thing about the incandescent light bulb going away. guess what happens, right? >> you're right. i think this is a demonstration of how out of sync the global warmers are, the united nations is with a majority of american public opinion. there is totally out of wack. >> what about how much the numbers have shifted? it was $60 billion just, what was it, a year ago and now it's much, much higher than that. where's the increase come from? >> the bill's gone up. it's tripled in three years. >> in three years. >> maybe because they've chucked in hunger and poverty into the mix with climate change. maybe. >> mr. stuart varney, 9:20 on the fox business network. pretty darn good network. >> you're quite right. >> coming up, he tried to kill americans by hiding a bomb in his pants. now the suspected underwear bomber telling the judge he's got a couple of demands.

>> time for some friday morning headlines. two people were killed when their small plane crashed into a parking lot near a hospital in watsonville, california. it went down shortly after takeoff and burst into flames. nobody on the ground was hurt and no word yet on what took down the airplane there. and postponement denied. the nigerian terror suspect known as the underwear bomber will go on trial as suggested and as scheduled on october 4th.
6:24am
he is representing himself. oh, good. he wanted more time to review the evidence. but the judge told him he has had plenty of time so it moves on as scheduled. mr. bolling, over to you. >> it's a potential change in school curriculum that's raising some eyebrows. california's governor may soon approve a bill that would make it mandatory to teach gay history and contributions gay americans have made but does this kind of political correctness have a place in our public schools? he is a professor of history at the university of dayton and the author of "a patriot's history reader." first of all, tell us exactly where this stands in california law right now. >> it's awaiting signature from the governor. and, you know, california is one of the leading textbook providers in the country. not as big as it was. texas now, i think, is in first place. but this could be very significant if it goes through
6:25am
because it's going to affect textbooks everywhere. >> tell us exactly how it's going to affect them. tell us what the bill proposes. >> well, you have to give treatment of significant accomplishments of gays and lesbians, you know, in various historical settings. this is a continuation of the kind of political correctness that we talked about a couple of years ago on "fox & friends" when we did our "trouble with textbooks" segment and basically what it's going to require is that you have certain number of lines literally, certain number of words dedicated to gays and lesbians at all points in history as you now do in the textbooks with, actually with hispanics, you know, i'm sure the national association of albinos and the association for polygamists is waiting out there to get in line to have their say and to start making sure that they get acknowledged, too. >> professor, tell me how young these children are going to be
6:26am
who are going to be exposed to these textbook? >> well, the textbooks go all the way into elementary school. i'm not sure when the california curriculum goes into social studies in terms of gays and lesbians but usually it's somewhere around fourth, fifth grade that you start getting that sort of stuff. >> all right. you know, it is a little different, though, i mean, i understand the african-americans. i think it even goes as far as south pacific people, right, have to be represented. but this is different, right? this is a sexual orientation. shouldn't that be left to parents? >> exactly. i mean, not only does it offend religious values of a number of americans, but it's irrelevant. you know, what we in history have

♪ introducing purina one beyond a new food for your cat or dog. >> you know, a story you don't see much of on the mainstream media. you'll see about it here is the program called fast and furious and some genius somewhere along the line came up with this idea. all right. there's a terrible problem with guns down on our texas border with new mexico, arizona. let's figure out where they're coming. let's flood that area. let's put -- let's allow 2,000 guns to get in the hands of drug cartels. thought it was a great idea. that way we can track it. great idea until a border patrol agent was shot dead with one of the guns and since then, it has hit the -- absolutely hit the
6:32am
fan. >> and the guns have not been particularly well tracked. we don't know where the guns. >> they're not tracked at all! >> now the concern is investigating this and finding out who knew what, when and who came one the idea. >> this is something i've been digging into for a long time. this is near and dear to my heart because this goes all the way up the ladder whether they want to tell you that or not. mr. obama at one point said don't worry -- by the way, the atf is the group that put the guns in the hands of drug lords they were looking to track the guns. hope they get their hands on the drug lords with the chips embedded in the guns. they never followed them. atf answers to the department of justice so mr. obama interviewed holder. holder said i didn't know about it. obama comes out and says i didn't know about it. i believe him. take a listen to what darrell issa who is investigating what really is going on had to say about that. >> clearly atf although a
6:33am
participant in some cases was very much kept in the dark. the attorney general knew or should have known long before he says he did under this administration there seems to be a don't bother to enforce at all policy. so that disturbs us that there's less gun enforcement about illegal gun transactions under an administration that theoretically is more for gun control. >> and the other part of that, later on in that interview with bret baier, he goes on to say that he and senator grassley have been petitioning the white house and holder for information. they're getting documents that are completely redacted black with no information in it. there's a couple going on and he's on it. i think this thing will blossom into something very, very big. >> not only is taxpayer money being spent on this, of course, but we're learning that 43 weapons were found in a phoenix bus. some of these weapons are still here on american soil. they didn't go to mexico with the plans to track them. >> they stocked a car apparently full of crystal meth and arrested five guys. there were 50 guns. 43 were from the fast and
6:34am
furious program and molly touched on that. where did the money come from? stimulus. apparently, $90 million went to help with the trouble down there. 10 million transferred to atf for project gun run. stimulus money. >> think about this for a second. if you're going to do it, even if you have the wonderful idea of giving drug lords guns, they gave them ak-47's. they gave them surface to air. >> this wasn't a -- >> these weren't just handguns. these were high powered weapons ending up in crime scenes all over the country inside our borders. >> how come when the f.b.i. gives would be terrorists guns, they are dummy guns? they don't work. but in this instance, they all worked. >> a bad, bad, bad plan. >> still developing. more information coming on that but first some headlines. two men accused of conspiring to attack a military station in seattle are set for trial september 7th.

jaycee dugard, the now 31-year-old speaking out for the first time about the 18 years she spent trapped in her kidnapper's backyard. >> can't imagine being kidnapped and raped, you know. so it's just -- you just do what you have to do. to survive. >> dugard spoke about her first daughter who she gave birth to after being raped by her kidnapper at the age of 14. >> she's beautiful. i felt like i wasn't alone anymore. >> dugard has spent the last year writing a memoir. that book will be released on tuesday. >> you will have to wait until next friday to see the new sarah palin documentary "undefeated" but we have our first look at the trailer.

6:38am
takeoff of the shuttle a little later on today. don't be surprised if they scrub it for a while. as you can see, the current temperatures as you head out the door on this friday, temperatures in the mostly in the 60's and 70's although we have a few 80's and a few 90's as well down south. later today, it's going to be a hot one. 104 dallas. 100 for san antonio, about the same for much of texas. 108 today in phoenix. meanwhile, it looks like 90's in the mid atlantic. it will be about 80 degrees here in new york city. meanwhile, if you're lucky enough to be out in los angeles where all the movies come from, today's high should be 74. >> all right. thank you, steve. right now, hollywood is all about girl power. but this year's leading ladies are not for the faint of heart. >> courtney friel is here to break down the movies that are turning bad girls good? courtney? >> good morning. happy friday. you guys are absolutely right. this year at the box office, it is all about the hollywood bad girl. earlier this summer, the female cast of "bridesmaids" gave their
6:39am
male "hangover" counterparts a run for their money. did you see that movie? it was so raunchy, i felt like i needed a shower after leaving the theater. a few weeks ago, cameron diaz got crude in "bad teacher" cursing her students, smoking pot. that movie raked in $32 million on opening weekend compared to the $12 million "my sister's keeper" made in which diaz played a serious mother and starting today, audiences will see jennifer anniston step out of her comfort zone in "horrible bosses". everybody's buzzing about her role as a mannequin seductive dentist who sexually harasses her assistant and easily uses a gay slur that's ignited some controversy in itself. what do these ladies think about their raunchy roles? we asked them. >> at first when i first read it, i was like oh, this character. this woman, i couldn't ever play her. how can i redeem this person from all of the horrible things that she's doing? and then by the end of it, i was
6:40am

6:46am
camera may help change that letting you see years of damage. she is a spokesperson for the skin cancer foundation and good morning to you. >> good morning. couple of mornings ago, some guy came in here to take pictures of me with the new camera that's out there that shows the damage to a person's skin. now, who is taking these pictures? where can a person get the pictures made? >> sure, so the camera specifically referring to is the reveal camera and as you mentioned, this camera has a couple of capabilities. it uses cross polarization in order to eliminate surface reflection and show you some subsurface defects. >> let's go ahead and take a look. first shot, that's my typical mug shot with my eyes closed. that's typical. >> that's typical. >> what's thatshow? >> the image on the right is showing cross polarizaon. by eliminating surface glare, we can see the subsurface detail
6:47am
but it's not yet so dramatic. >> all right. it's not dramatic. this picture is. what is going on with my face? >> your face has been converted by a specific software to reay extract the pigment that is there underneath the skin. that brown correlates with melanin which is what your body produces when exposed to the sun. >> obviously, i have been out in the sun a lot. >> you have clearly been out in the sun a lot. >> this is no spray-on tan. >> no. now, but that is -- that can be bad news for a guy. and i understand that men over 40 are some of the most likely to develop skin cancer. >> you're absolutely right. so although that image was dramatic and may be upsetting to you, it's not atypical. you've had a lifetime of sun exposure. >> sure. >> and it's unfortunate but it does sort of wreak havoc later in life so skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and it really is sort of an epidemic, increasing every single year. >> sure and for a lot of people, remember during the 1960's and
6:48am
1970's, people didn't put on suntan lotion like we got right here. they put on baby oil. they'd have reflectors. they'd do all that stuff to try to get a deep tan. they didn't know what we know now. so given the fact that a lot of our people watching right now probably would have images like that taken of themselves, what should we do? >> well, it's a good question because you'd be surprised that still about 60% of u.s. households don't purchase any skin line products and it's for that reason that banana boat partnered with the skin cancer foundation in order to have an education campaign so families can have fun and be safe in summer all day long. every individual that visits the facebook page and takes a really quick quiz will trigger a $1 donation to the skin cancer foundation to support their education efforts. >> that's terrific that banana boat is doing that plus we should also mention, you know, if you're over 40 years old, you should probably go visit a dermatologist at least once a year to have a body check to make sure everything is ok. >> i'm glad you mentioned that. it's oftentimes, although a lot
6:49am
of the damage is on the face and areas that you see every day, people don't necessarily know the signs and symptoms of skin cancer and an annual skin check even in your 20's. we see melanoma in the 20's and 30's all the time. >> i know. i went to my doctor over in ridgewood, new jersey and he said see that thing right there? i'm going to saw that off. and he did. it could have been something some day but he took care of it and nipped it in the bud. >> it's so important. >> you should do the same if you have any questions, check your dermatologist and dr. julie karen, thank you very much for coming over to the studios so quickly this morning. >> my pleasure. >> all right. straight ahead on this friday morning, casey anthony ruined her parents' reputations. can they sue her and win the case? judge napolitano with some surprising insight into what happens next. then who will replace disgraced congressman anthony weiner? turns out the democratic frontrunner has the same -- had some of the same bizarre habits of his own. that's him dancing?

6:54am
>> well, they could sue their daughter but the lawsuit would be dismissed almost as soon as it was filed. and here's the reason. in this country and in great britain as well, we have what's called the litigation privilege. a fancy phrase meaning whatever you say in a courtroom or whatever you say in furtherance of what goes on in the courtroom, could be in a judge's chambers. could be in a conference room is absolutely privileged meaning it cannot form the basis for litigation. if that were not so, then these trials would never end and people would always sue others for what they said during the course of the trial. also if that were not so, it might inhibit people from answering truthfully a question put to them in the courtroom. now, this is a little bit unusual because it came from the mouth of the lawyer. whatever lawyers say in the courtroom cannot form the basis of a lawsuit. where did he get this from? did he make this up or did she tell him to say this? if he made it up, he committed an ethics violation but that's between him and the ethics

prosecutors in florida. if she gave him information on which to base this outrageous claim, then he's not only permitted to do it but he exercised his judgment and decided the jury should hear it. >> it's been interesting because their attorney, the anthonys' attorney have said they're upset about what baez said. so it's almost as if they're not blaming their daughter. >> well, molly, this is such a dysfunctional family to say the least. i can't imagine that they would want to open up wounds or reopen up wounds now that the particular trial is over. there's going to be some legal issues with which casey will have to deal for a long time. but it's almost inconceivable that would include a lawsuit by her parents. >> what about the possibility that the mother, cindy, could face perjury charges for talking about chloroform on the stand. >> that's a great question. here's the rule of thumb. the government usually follows this rule of thumb. if the perjury sabotaged the
6:56am
government's case, they will go after the perjurer, if the perjury did not affect the ultimate outcome of the case, they have more important fish to fry. honestly, i don't think that what the mother said about chloroform affected the outcome of the case. we know the -- we've seen the interviews with the jurors in their view, the government just didn't have the goods on her. the government charged her for a crime that they couldn't permit. and besides, did you watch that mother's testimony? it wasn't very believable at all. i don't think the government will go after her. could they? yes, they have the absolute right to decide who to charge. i don't think they'll get anywhere with this one. >> thank you, judge napolitano, "freedom watch" on the fox business network. >> nice to see somebody from boston down here. is that because the red sox are in first place? >> wouldn't i wish? wouldn't that be nice? >> they are! >> all right. looking for work, if you are a good writer, consider a government job. the going rate is more than 10 grand per sentence? and jurors from the casey anthony trial beginning to feel the backlash. some are no longer welcome in

7:04am
sentence her and did just that. he essentially gave her the harshest punishment possible. remember, she lied to cops on four occasions and so he gave her four years in jail plus $4,000 worth of fines. given the fact that she's already served 1,000 days, they calculated good days, bad days, she's going to get out. initially, they thought this coming wednesday but they did the recalculation, she will be sprung on sunday, july 17th although when you look at her in court yesterday, eric and molly, you know, she let her hair down. she had different kind of clothes on, kind of a v-neck sweater. she looked like she thought she was going to walk out of that courtroom yesterday. >> and technically, she could have. she might have walked off. >> she could have. >> we're talking about seven to eight days. it's not that big of a huge thing for, i guess, anyone. she should be thrilled she's walking out of court at all. but we had the attorney for the family. i guess there's some question as to whether she's going to go
7:05am
live with the anthonys, when she's released, an aunt from texas or cindy and george anthony but the attorney for cindy and george anthony was on earlier and he said this. >> in the opening statements, mr. baez made some very -- for lack of a better term, fantastic remarks about george anthony, about the section you'xual mole about george having something to do with moving the body. before he made any questions or asked anybody anything, he didn't have immunity but in the state of florida, once you ask even one question of anybody involved in the trial, you get immunity. so we can't have -- we can't even sue him. he did what he had to do to defend his client. and we're left with the results. >> and that was in response to the question you had asked him, steve, as to whether or not the family, cindy and george were going to go ahead and sue jose baez for some -- >> they would like him disbarred because of the attorneys, mr. lippman said that stuff about
7:06am
george anthony, about him abusing his daughter and moving the body, those are simply lies that jose baez proffeed to get casey anthony off the hook. >> they seem to be taking the emphasis off of casey and blaming him. they seem to be placing the blame for this squarely on the lawyer. the family lawyer also had this to say. lippman says the parents haven't spoken with casey. we saw the dysfunctional relationship in court so it's unclear what the relationship will be after casey is released with her parents. take a listen. >> no, the parents haven't spoken with casey since the verdict. as far as what my clients think, i'm bound by attorney-client privilege but i can say that they're trying to rebuild their lives right now and trying to see what the next chapter holds for them and where they're going to go from here. >> ok. we have heard from another juror yesterday. we told you about jennifer ford, juror number 3. now, juror number 2.
7:07am
a 46-year-old guy who works in the information technology business spoke to the st. petersburg newspaper and he says this, i swear to god, i wish we had more evidence to put her away. i truly do. everybody agreed, if we were going to fully -- if we were going fully on emotions and feelings, she was done. he also said -- and here's the problem. he says, the state did not present how the child died, when or where and he says this juror number 2, he did not believe one single thing that george anthony said. >> but the state didn't have to present how the child died. there are many cases where people -- >> obviously. >> it would have been helpful. but please, these jurors now, ford yesterday, this guy today, talking about how much they wanted to convict. well, then convict her. i mean, caylee anthony is dead, buried and gone but casey anthony will walk out of jail. >> if it wasn't going to be first-degree murder. >> i think there's something
7:08am
else. >> there were lesser charges they could have found. >> right, while the jurors say they have to focus on the evidence, the emotions and feelings, nobody says you can't feel them and not ka have them if you weren't on the jury and a lot of people have very strong feelings about this case especially in florida. there's a restaurant there, a chili place, skyline chili in clearwater that put up a sign that says they don't want the jurors there so thiey've made their feelings clear. really heated emotions down in florida. she'll be released on sunday. it will be interesting to see what happens when she gets out of jail. the story isn't over although the trial is. >> there's a story out there that apparently the judge is not going to release the names of the jurors until next week, until things die down. he thinks things will die down next week. >> couple of viewers weighed in on the jurors. keith from florida says don't shun the jurors, they did their job. it's the prosecution who failed! and this tweet says -- it goes -- this goes too far, discrimination, no matter who it
7:09am
is, they did their jobs even if they -- even if you don't agree. i don't know. steve, i just can't buy this. i know, i get it, judge napolitano says it's the law. it's the law. but look, there was plenty of room for a conviction of something more than lying to a cop. more than saying, i was -- i wasn't speeding, officer, i know you had me going 65. >> but i agree with the fella who says, ok, you might not agree with it but they did their job. now, leave them alone. >> it was a tough job. >> yeah, no kidding. >> meanwhile, speaking of a tough job, there's still no deal on the debt ceiling so president obama and congressional leaders will be working through the weekend. >> peter doocy live in d.c. with the details. peter? >> molly, optimism seems to be the feeling that republicans got from speaker of the house john boehner yesterday. speaker dromd by the conservative senate steering committee after his meeting with the president at the white house and g.o.p. senator bob corker from tennessee was there and he said this about a debt deal. "i think the world and all of us
7:10am
will know something very shortly. they'll either have a grand bargain or they won't." now, after sitting down with leaders from both parties in congress, president obama popped into the press briefing room at the white house where he said the meeting was constructive and all the key players have agreed to work through the weekend before meeting again on sunday. >> everybody acknowledged that we have to get this done before the hard deadline of august 2nd to make sure that america does not default for the first time on its obligations. and everybody acknowledged that there's going to be pain involved politically on all sides but our biggest obligation is to make sure that we're doing the right thing by the american people. >> and president obama emphasized that nothing is agreed to until everything is agreed to. those are his words and the pain here deals with democrats figuring how far they're willing
7:11am
to go to performing medicare and social security and republicans figuring out how far they're willing to go to raise new revenue and more talks will take place today at the white house. democratic leader nancy pelosi will meet with the president there at 10:00 a.m. back to you guys. >> all right, peter. thank you very much for that live report. the key is what does raise that revenue mean? does it mean an increase in taxes? does it mean tightening some loopholes? stay tuned. big meeting on sunday. >> sunday. yeah. >> straight ahead, was billy madison's riding lesswriting le big waste? >> in perfect cursive. anymore brain busters? > >> more schools saying cursive, who needs it? >> the president's top campaign guy says unemployment won't really matter in the 2012 race. what's that supposed to mean? our panel weighs in next.

now powering the lg revolution. >> welcome back. is the president's senior advisor for politics out of touch? david plouffe saying "the average american does not view the economy through the prism of gdp or unemployment rates or even monthly job numbers. people won't vote based on the unemployment rate. they're going to vote based on how do i feel about my own situation? do i believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family? so it's about that, not about unemployment. saying that with 9.1 unemployment rate right now, though, that's challenging, right? let's talk to the panel this morning. we have jennifer polmeri, the
7:16am
center for american progress, a surrogate for president obama, and joe trippe, former howard dean presidential campaign manager. you guys have a lot of ties -- fox news contributor. and lieutenant colonel done arias, brother of a 9/11 victim. let's start with david plouffe who says people aren't going to vote based on unemployment. >> he's beaten me more than his fair share. this isn't something that i would advise him to say. he sounds indifferent even though i know what he was trying to say. people are going to -- >> translate for him, then. >> they are going to measure the president based on whether they think the president is fighting for him or not and doing the job for them or not. i think a lot of ways people measure that, do i have a job? is the unemployment rate going up? how do i feel about the economy? and right now, they don't feel that great about it. it's got to turn. >> probably would have been ok
7:17am
if he says people don't look at the gdp numbers. most people don't know what that is. to get to unemployment is probably a mistake. inverse is if the unemployment rate is low, the president wouldn't, you know, they probably wouldn't feel good about the president either. it's inartful. >> what do you think? >> you know, steve, this is like the guy who says who wants to live to be 100 years old? ask the guy who is 90 years old. so ask the guy who don't have jobs how they feel about it. so i think i care. and i think a lot of people do care and maybe it's just not being measured right. >> if -- here's one measurement on real clear politics which is nonpartisan, it's pretty much right down the middle, they have this poll where they take a look at the averages of how do people feel about the direction the country is going in right now? 63% say wrong direction. joe, if on election day 2012, 63% of the people who go to pull the leaver feel they go the wrong direction, they're going to pull the other leaver. >> that's not so true with
7:18am
obama. it's very interesting. he doesn't do that badly with people who think they're going the wrong direction. >> people are separating the country from obama and his -- >> i think one -- >> he's the leader! >> second of all, there's a lot of people who do whether or not people want to disagree with this or not doesn't matter. they believe he inherited these problems and he's doing the best they can. >> how long does blaming george bush work? >> i think, look, this -- that flavor is going to move away as we get closer to november if things don't turn. look, it is the economy, stupid, as james carville said in this cycle that it will be. and i think people are still -- enough people are still giving the president the benefit of the doubt that if it turns, you know, defeating him in november is going to be a problem. >> jennifer? >> if the election was a referendum on how people thought about the economy or the direction the country is going, then obama would probably not do very well. at that point, it's going to be a choice between two candidates and, you know, if they look -- auto he's specially if the other guy or gal has credentials that make it look like they've been in a situation where they've
7:19am
bailed things out. >> maybe or it looks like they had the same proposals that other republican presidents have had that their answer to creating more jobs is have more tax cuts, that's proven not to work. so the choice is going to be what, you know, what ultimately matters. >> don? final word. >> i think any one of these candidates are going to give the president a run for the money based on the numbers alone. he's going to have an upward hill to find his way up to become president again. >> all right. i know you were eyeballing the barbecue a little while ago. you get to dig in in about five more minutes. next up on the panel, the white house working through the weekend for a debt limit deal. guess what's on the table. the pentagon budget. the lieutenant colonel wants to weigh in on that, on whether or not that's a good idea and then no more second chances, the long arm of the law is about to crack down on willie nelson. almost tastes like one of jack's als.

7:24am
canceled a vacation to work on a deal this weekend. some say it's just to avoid criticism and that the real problem is a plan that still includes problematic cuts like slashing the pentagon budget. easy for me to say. we're back with our panel. jennifer, joe trippe and lieutenant colonel don arias. let's start with you. they're talking about cutting the pentagon budget. >> yeah, they're talking with $400 billion in cuts that the administration says equals 1% of the budget of the pentagon. 1% of the budget in the pentagon would be $5.5 billion. their math doesn't add up. >> it seems at a time when we're working in essentially three different countries, three dufr different wars, now wouldn't be the time. >> let's try four. let's throw in yemen while we're at it. they're going to cut the pentag pentagon's budget and we're supposed to do what we have to do with limited resources. i think, you know, when you've got a $14.5 trillion debt,
7:25am
that's just a drop in a bucket. >> so they're talking about cutting the pentagon budget. jennifer, they're talking -- the white house has put out the word that the president is considering cuts to social security. when you read that in the paper, you must have said what? >> i think it's -->> the coffee shot right out of your nose when you read that. >> that's such an appealing photo. and i think, yeah, there is definitely a problem with democrats, particularly house democrats on social security and medicare cuts but i think what -- strategically what the white house is trying to do which from a strategic standpoint is smart is change this from a spending cut debate to who is serious about deficit reduction and it's only in that context of having a huge deal, $4 trillion deal that you can get republicans to agree to some sort of tax revenue increase. >> the fascinating thing is the republicans are claiming the president hasn't been engaged enough and there are progressive democrats who want to think the

president is too engaged. so they're -- >> he recently became engaged. for two years, he didn't want to talk about it and then even when his debt commission came out last year, he said yeah, thanks. never mind about that. it's only recently he's really gotten engaged. >> either way, there's going to be a debate about whether he is or isn't. real thing is i think both sides are off the mark. if debt is the big problem, jobs and the economy are a bigger problem. we have to get to jobs in this thing. how do you get tax credits? >> are you talking about actually create jobs? >> no, no, within the -- no, take some of the loopholes and put them into tax credits like refurbishing the nation's schools, that wod put a million building trades people back to work that are out because of the housing crisis. there are things that could be done but they're so focused on fighting each other on the partisan terms, we're not coming together. >> there's a lot of that. final word? >> i think people are fed up with this twittering political class that we got. we want to see some action and
7:27am
we want to see the president roll up his sleeves, not about the optics but come up with real solutions. 800 days without a budget in this administration without a budget! now he's getting involved? >> his last budget, the senate voted it down 97-0. so who knows? great panel discussion today. lieutenant colonel don arias, joe trippe and jennifer, thank you all. have a great weekend. dead or alive, he's one of the most wanted terrorists in the world. new lead on that guy right there. and then you know him from extreme make-over home edition. what does ty pennington have cooking today? he's taking out his tools and showing us live right here. a a and augustana, the band is here. the all american summer concert series rocks on.

7:37am
at a homeless shelter in d.c., right? >> you had no idea this was coming. >> that's right. my son billy nominated me for this contest without me knowing and the first i heard was when sears contacted me to tell me i was a finalist. >> what do you do at the homeless shelter? i know you were trying not to take too much credit. you're giving a lot of credit to the people that help out there. >> tom and gary who run that place and do a magnificent job but primarily, i organize a father-son service project every year and we put in hundreds and hundreds of man hours in there trying to make a bit of a difference down there for them. but we're really looking forward and i really do want to thank sears for this money because 0 $30,000 is going to make a huge difference there. we had a laundry list of jobs that needed to be done. this is going to allow us to get started on some of the real projects. >> good we have the internet savvy kid to help things get rolling here. we have the great props here, part of the things that you guys are capable of doing.
7:38am
>> we're actually going to donate these to a shelter as well. it will all go to a good cause. what's kind of neat, too, we want to hear more stories so, you know, if you go to the sears facebook page, you know, if you have somebody that you think is sort of an unsung hero doing great things, dads, put them in. we'd love to showcase them and give them the funds they can do an even bigger project. that's the idea. >> give us a little show and tell and maybe i'll throw out one more question as you guys are working. how much needed are these services? just the handyman services at places like homeless shelters and community places. >> i can only speak to the one that i work with. here, they work out of a basement of a 150-year-old church so to say they need some assistance in this regard is an understatement. but basically what we're hoping to do is to redo their food pantry area and there's -- this is the father mckenna center at the high school in washington,
7:39am
and what they really need is something for their drop-in services. men can come here and get a shower, get their laundry done, as well as food services and the indigent as well in the area can use the facility here so this is really going to help them make a big, big difference. >> i will let you guys -- i was going to say, i'll let you guys get to work as i say thank you and we'll do a little show and tell here at the very end but thank you so much. bill, congratulations on your win and ty, too, thanks for coming in. >> glad to do it. thank you guys. >> which, by the way, the new season is september 25th. great show always warms the heart. thank you, guys, for joining us here today. we'll let you get to work. >> thanks for having us. >> ty, a couple of years ago, you were here and you put up some moulding in green room a, it still stands today. >> wow. i thought it was a different kind of moulding. i thought by now it turned green or black. that's good to hear! >> good enough. thank you guys. all right, straight ahead on this friday, eric. >> this game got a little too real. rival football teams settle the score using their fists!

>> got quick headlines for you. look at the cover of "the daily news" here in new york, did president obama's father and mother plan to give him up for adoption? that's according to u.s. immigration documents uncovered by "the boston globe." a reporter has written a book.
7:44am
former white house press secretary robert gibbs says the president is convinced, president obama's mother was not involved in trying to adopt him. put him up for adoption. and a practice game between two high school teams erupts into an all out brawl. it's not clear what sparked the fight but the rival teams from baton rouge, louisiana, punched and kicked each other for about five minutes until the coaches finally broke it up. all right. eric, over to you. >> thank you, steven. all right, his daughter has been acquitted of murder but george anthony has been accused of sexual abuse, cheating on his wife and even admitting to contemplating suicide. so now that the trial is over, what's going on inside the mind of george anthony? dr. keith ablow is a good friend of ours, psychiatrist and a fox news contributor. doc, watching that trial, it looked like george anthony was caught completely off guard about the molestation charge. what's your sense and what do you think he's going -- what is
7:45am
he thinking about right now? >> well, right now, what he's thinking about depends very much upon what happened with caylee. i will tell you this -- you know, i'm a forensic psychiatrist. i've worked in this field more than 20 -- 15 years, eric, and i find it very peculiar, very peculiar indeed that the suicide attempt comes in the midst of this trial. in my experience and in the experience of every psychiatrist i've asked and every forensic clinician i've asked since this trial began and since particularly the suicide attempt, they don't know of, they can't remember, they can't tell me of a grandparent who in the setting of the loss of his granddaughter decides, i just can't live anymore. this is an odd -- it's an odd, i understand the pain involved but still, it's a very peculiar event and it really would be wise for people to be thinking much more about who this person is, right back to his early life
7:46am
history. who really is he? especially given the abuse allegations. >> right. doc, did you see? i mean, it seems obvious to me, did you also see a complete change of demeanor before he was accused of the -- you know, the sexual abuse and after? >> absolutely. and on the stand, i got to say again and i'm observing it from a distance. i haven't evaluated this man face to face, but listen, when you're asked on the stand, did you or didn't you force sex on your 8-year-old daughter, and you reply with no seeming emotion. i would never hurt her that way. really? you don't get out of your seat and say that's the most disgusting thing i've ever heard and how is it that your daughter who is supposedly just plain out there or a murderess is brought to tears and has an incredible -- a look of incredible accusation on her face as you say those words.
7:47am
>> give us a sense. is there a possibility for casey anthony to move back or at least have a relationship with george anthony? >> look, if she does, then you'd really have to wonder how many people are complicit in the murder of this little girl because here's a guy who has said my daughter did it. i smelled the smell of death in the trunk. by the way, while he has been accused of carrying on a sexual affair? i mean, look, i don't know this guy. but i did write the book "inside the mind of scott peterson" and you'll remember the way he carried on an affair when he was supposedly searching for his dead wife whom he had killed and his unborn child connor. it's very odd to carry on a romantic liaison while you're supposedly at death's door thinking about suicide because your granddaughter has been killed in a way you say you don't know how. >> all right, doc, last question. any way to do a sort of
7:48am
psychological profile from afar like this? >> listen, here's the thing, eric. i've been criticized lately and wrongly so about applying what i know about the human mind and forensic psychiatry and psychology to people i haven't met. i don't diagnose these folks. i don't say look, they have manic depression. but the bottom line is when i signed up with fox news, i said, i want to bring this special lens of looking inside the minds to news events. i'm not going to stop doing that. to do that would suggest i can't bring my entire life's work to this enterprise which i insist i will. >> you know what? you do a great job of that. absolutely enjoy having you on all the shows. thank you, dr. keith ablow. coming up at the top of the hour, republican presidential candidate michelle bachmann is here with a message for the president. but first on this date in history, in 1979, anita ward had the hit number one "ring my bell." i don't remember that.

8:02am
morning. >> steve: great to have you asle. you've got a new ad out, congresswoman. i know you know. some of our viewing audience might not know. you vow you will not vote to raise the debt limit. let's play a snippet for our folks at home. >> i know we can't pay for things we don't have. i voted against the stimulus. i will not vote to increase the debt ceiling. >> steve: not a lot of gray there. you are pretty clear, you will not vote to raise the debt ceiling. why? >> because we need a fundamental restructuring of our economy and unfortunately, government is taking just too much of everyone's money. it's interesting because what president obama was running for president of the united states, he famously said the fact that we even had to have a discussion at all about raising the debt ceiling indicated a failure of leadership. now the shoe is on the other foot. it's a failure of leadership on
8:03am
barak obama. his answer is put more burden on the american people, tax people more, regulate people more, and if you ask small business owners like i did all across new hampshire, south carolina, and iowa last week and the week before, what do we need to do to create jobs? they won't tell you, raise my taxes. make sure i have more regulations and oh, by the way, if all else fails, have even more government. that's just the opposite answer. to clearly the president isn't listening to the american people across the united states. >> eric: congresswoman, by the way, congratulations on the recent uptick in moving up in the iowa polls. listen to what jay carney had to say in response to you no raising of the debt ceiling. >> there may be other members who feel that way. we obviously disagree strongly and think that it would be a mistake not to do that because we are talking here about the united states of america
8:04am
defaulting on its obligations for the first time in its history. the consequences of that, as right hand reagan believed, as president obama believes, would be significant and unpredictable and in no way positive. they would definitely be negative. the question is how seriously negative and i think there is ample evidence to suggest it would be quite serious. >> eric: invoking ronald reagan, do you want to respond to the white house after that response to your ad? >> of course. it's absolutely absurd to think that the united states would have to default on its debt because we have revenues consistently coming in to government. the first revenues have to be applied to paying off the interest on the debt. and that's something that quite simply we can take care of. we first direct that and from there we have to pay for our priorities and spending. social security, medicare, the military, we have priorities. and after that, we have to have some very tough love. we can't spend money on everything that politicians
8:05am
want. it's not that tough. >> steve: the irony is when he was senator, barak obama voted not to raise the debt limit. >> exactly. exactly. as president of the united states, all he's done, we know he passed his trillion dollars failed stimulus program and fra that, we -- from that we found out last week that the average cost of a job was $278,000 for a government job under the stimulus and even though the president's own numbers say had the president done nothing, we would have seen 288,000 jobs created this week. instead, we're losing jobs. so clearly the president's policies have failed. the unfortunate thing is the president isn't learning from the failures he's done for the last 2 1/2 years and by the way, this week the president said that he had another 5 1/2 years to go on his term. i think the american people need to be consulted on that first. i don't think they see that.
8:06am
>> molly: congresswoman, you're not the only person running for president. the president is also running for reelection and some of his staff members that are working towards his campaign have said that the unemployment numbers, the actual numbers don't really matter. david plouffe said the average american does not view the economy through the gdp or monthly job numbers. people won't vote based on unemployment numbers. they'll vote on how is my own situation? what do you think of that as we await the new numbers coming out this morning? >> i think that's the height of political spin on the part of the president. clearly he's more interested in himself and his own reelection and not enough about the true plight of the american people. as i said, i've been all over iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina. that's not what the american people are saying. they're disgusted. they look at washington, d.c. right now and say, these politicians are so out of touch. they have no idea what my life
8:07am
is like. and the president of the united states does not have his pulse on the american people. they just want jobs. i sit on financial services committee. we deal with job creation. the great news is, most jobs are created in small businesses, but here is the bad news, in 2006, 64% of all jobs were created in small businesses with less than 50 employees, this last year, it was something like 48%. so small businesses are suffering, too. that's why we're not seeing private sector job creation. >> steve: a couple of minutes ago, eric mentioned congratulations in a new poll, ppp, public policy polling which is a lefty outfit, did polling in new hampshire and there you are firmly in second place. a lot of the support comes from tea party members as well. but for you to get that kind of number in new hampshire, you got to feel pretty good about it. >> we really do.
8:08am
the numbers have been skyrocketing all across the country. but i recognize this is a marathon, not a sprint. and i think it's my message that i'm bringing that i'm going to bring my background, my expertise to the fact of fundamentally restructuring washington, d.c so that government gets less and the american people get to keep more. that's really what people want to hear. >> steve: all right. it's been great having you, congresswoman michelle bachman. thank you very much for joining us today. >> eric: thank you. we know you'll be busy. >> i will. we'll see you soon, bye. >> steve: all right. >> molly: other headlines. a man goes on a killing spree before finally turning the gun on himself, the story developing overnight in grand rapids, michigan. 34-year-old man killed seven people, including his own daughter. he then led police on a high-speed chase across town where he took three strangers hostage inside their home. the ordeal ended when he shot himself. the hostages escaped unharmed.

>> molly: united nations is pushing for a green economy, but what exactly does that mean? a new report says, quote, a comprehensive global energy transition is urgently needed in order to avert a major planetary catastrophe. and the price tag, $76 trillion over the next 40 years. brent bozelle, the president of the media research center, joins
8:16am
us this morning. good morning, thanks for being here. >> good morning. how are you doing? >> molly: good. all is well. let's talk about the money that is involved here because it's a lot of money. a grand total of $1.9 trillion per year, 40 years, adding up to the $76 trillion. researchers say it would cost less years ago. but we're not hearing a lot about this. why do you think that is? >> it's so outrageous! if the american people knew that the u.n. secretary general has signed off on this report -- this is serious stuff. this is what they want. if the public knew what they want, they're calling for a radically new economic system. they're calling for global governance. folks, that's one world government. i'm not a nut bag here. this is what they're calling for in this paper. it went from $600 billion two years ago to $1.9 trillion for
8:17am
40 years. $76 trillion. they want half of it to go to developing countries. that's a massive redistribution of wealth. this is global socialism. if the american people knew about it, the first thing they'd be asking themselves is what in the world are we doing making contributions to this socialist enterprise? the media coverage on this, absolutely nothing. >> molly: there is a tremendous amount of money we're talking about, more than five times america's gdp. there is another quote. a chinese diplomat at the u.n. connected to the rio summit said this, that the united states of america is a country that people around the world admire for its can do attitude. here people believe that no problem is too big for human engeneral newt to solve. the world never needed it more than it does now. the people need your leadership. so in a sense, the question here is what will the price tag be for america? we're paying 22% of the u.n. agency's budget already.
8:18am
>> of course they admire us. they admire the success. they admire money even more than our success. here is something interesting. one week before this report came out about this global warming, another u.n. report came out going after china for causing global cooling with their cold policies. i wish they could decide which one it was. by the way, when you have global cooling and global warming, what do you have? climate change. it's also called weather. >> molly: brent, thank you for joining us this morning. it will be interesting to see how things would be implemented down the road. >> thank you. >> molly: straight ahead, he's out of politics and out of acting. so what's arnold schwarzenegger up to now? you've got to hear this. don't laugh at these low budget commercials. they put the men behind them on the map. wait until you see how they made themselves famous.

>> steve: give us the bad news. >> eric: jobs report for june is out. released just a minute ago by the labor department. the unemployment rate now, up to 9.2%, up from 9.1% last month. the report also showed this is bad, guys -- that the u.s. added 18,000 jobs last month. they were expecting 90,000 jobs. in two hours, president obama will address the jobs report from the white house rose garden steve, we've been talking about this the last couple of days. you needed 217,000 per month
8:32am
every single month until election just to get to 8%. we're going in the absolute wrong direction. >> steve: let me ask you about, you were here yesterday and according to the adp poll, and they're the makers of payroll. they print the checks. that number was pretty big yesterday. how come this one is about a -- >> eric: they don't necessarily match up. if you remember the big jump last month when we were expecting great things out of the unemployment numbers a month ago, adp was better than expected the day before as well. so that really is a snapshot. this is the big one. >> steve: it's big bad news? >> eric: yes. >> molly: indeed. we have someone out of washington that can weigh in on all of this. bret baier, chatting with the washington folks on sunday. you're hosting fox news sunday? >> yes, sitting in for chris wallace. >> molly: slept. what about these unemployment numbers? how much of an impact is this going to have and we recently heard from one of president obama's campaign spokespeople
8:33am
that maybe america is not really looking at these numbers? >> that was an amazing statement from david plouffe about america not seeing the world through the prism of the gdp or unemployment numbers, saying it's your own personal family situation. but this is a really bad number, a bad number, 9.2% and a really bad number on 18,000 jobs created. you look at the david plouffe statement and what president obama said when he was answering a tweet from house speaker john boehner that asked, where are the jobs? and he said that that question was skewed. there is a feeling among some, particularly republicans obviously -- that the administration is disconnected to the seriousness of how big the unemployment problem is. obviously you're going to hear from the president who will try to paint a picture of how he thinks the economy is on the right track a little bit later
8:34am
this morning. that's a big, big number this morning. >> steve: sure. and we understand as well, right this very minute in that round building behind you at the capitol, supposedly both sides are trying to figure out how to cut the debt. they're trying to come up with a debt limit deal and they're going to meet with the president again on sunday. but with this information, where the unemployment is going up, mr. baer, you would think that would embolden the republicans 'cause then they can say look, mr. president, you can not raise revenue or increase taxes when unemployment is going that way! >> this doesn't help the negotiations. that's probably true, steve. we have senator mitch mcconnell on fox news sunday before he heads into that big meeting at the white house. it will be interesting to get his take. there is some skepticism on all sides about this deal that is now kind of a mega deal that is said to include restructuring of the tax code, moving down the corporate tax rates, taking out
8:35am
tax loopholes, but also touching on entitlements and medicare and medicaid and social security. one of the reasons nancy pelosi, the minority leader, has her own meeting with the president today is because democrats are apoplectic that the white house appears to be moving toward a negotiation on that front. so it's going to be an interesting couple of days and we hope to have a behind the scenes on fox news sunday. >> eric: turning the page, last night you broke news, you had darryl issa on. let's listen to what he had to say. >> clearly atf, although a participant in some cases was kept in the dark. the attorney general knew or should have known long before he says he did. under this administration, there seems to be a don't bother to enforce it all policy. so that disturbs us that there is less gun enforcement about illegal gun transactions under an administration that theoretically is more for gun control. >> steve: there he is talking about this fast and furious
8:36am
program which somebody had to great idea. let's try to figure out how the guns are being run across the u.s.-mexican border. let's inject or let's allow 2,000 of them to get into the hands of drug cartels. one of the guns killed a border patrol agent and now this is a bonafide scandal for the administration, isn't it? >> this is a big deal. it's not going to end this week. it's going to continue, this investigation, when acting atf director kenneth nelson met with both chairman issa and senator chuck grassley, he showed up with his own personal attorney. when that happens and they're not showing up with government attorneys, things have changed. and according to that testimony and we're just getting bits and pieces of it -- it is pretty damning of the department of justice and how far this goes, whether it goes to attorney general eric holder is yet to be seen directly. but that's where it looks like it's heading. the big question is, how does this operation work in its best
8:37am
scenario? how do you track it if you're not tracking the guns? like what's the purpose of it? so i think you're going to see a lot more questions soon. >> steve: they got a lot of explaining to do. bret baier, we'll be watching this weekend. >> eric: monday, you going to watch the 5:00 o'clock before your 6:00 o'clock show? >> i sure am. i have a vested interest. >> steve: thank you very much. we got headlines for you on this friday morning. somali terror suspect brought to new york this week to face trial in a civilian court. reportedly has ties to one of america's most wanted. the somali suspect now being linked to this guy, american born al-qaeda leader, anwar al-awlaki, who runs the terror operation in yemen. somali suspect is believed to be a go-between for al-qaeda and al shabab militants in the continent of africa.

8:45am
and she's expected to be released on july 17. that doesn't mean her legal troubles are over. the lawyer for george and cindy anthony, her parents' lawyer joined us earlier and he wants to punish the defense team. >> in the opening statements, mr. baez made some very -- for lack of a better term -- fantastic remarks about george anthony about the sexual molestation, about george having something to do with moving the body, and before he made any questions or asked anybody anything or offered anything, he didn't have immunity. but in the state of florida, once you ask even one question of anybody involved in the trial, you get immunity. so we can't even sue him. he did what he had to do to defend his client and we're left with the results. >> steve: joining us live in the studio is peter johnson, jr. who says the blame game has started.
8:46am
>> it's begun. so we're going to go into this litigation mania, go to the lawyers, we're going to bring disciplinary charges. we're going to bring lawsuits, maybe in the end, based on casey anthony's theory, maybe she'll sue her own parents for wrongful death and fraudulent concealment under a wrongful death statute, or maybe they'll sue her for saying the things that her lawyer said. maybe baez will be attempted to be disbarred. maybe we can sue the jurors. maybe the jurors can sue me. maybe the jurors can sue you. maybe we can just ban all jurors from going into restaurants and then maybe they can sue the restaurants down in florida. the blame game has begun and some of the same dynamics that
8:47am
caused vigilante hosts to go on this rant for three years is out there again so people can feel comfortable in their positions. my view, sometimes accepted and sometimes not, is that the jury has spoken whether we like it or not. but to begin to revile jurors and then at the same time whether we like baez or not, whether we question whether he should be a member of the bar or not, he was doing his part as a defense lawyer and now his client has been acquitted. but everyone is going to be scrambling either for retribution or money or their own form of justice and everybody is going to be swept up into it, including the prosecution. what can we do to blame the prosecution? the poor guy retired. he did the best he could. what should we do? can we take his pension? maybe? >> steve: you're right that it started. but when you look at -- we had mr. litman on and when you think about, okay, so you're george
8:48am
anthony, your daughter's attorney said you were, in the opening statement, said you abused your daughter, moved the body, all that stuff, how does he get his reputation -- >> why don't he hold a press conference when it happened immediately? why did he testify in a stronger way? why didn't he speak out against it and say, it's a damnable lie and i'm not going to put up with it? why didn't we hear that? why doesn't he try and bring a lawsuit at this point and get the facts out, if he believes that's, in fact, the fact? if they want another retrial on all of these factual issues, that family has the capacity to do it. >> steve: there could be a civil trial? >> probably be dismissed, but if they want to gain the reputation back against their daughter, sure they can do it. but do we need this? no. >> steve: stop with the blame game! >> let's stop blaming each other. good to see you. >> steve: good job.
